The science of project management is the foundation for the art of leadership.

Project management tools and techniques have been used for decades on projects in all industries. This 2-day course presents these proven techniques and tips for applying them in today’s project-driven workplace.

Specific techniques such as Work Breakdown Structure and Resource Leveling will be presented, with opportunities to practice each technique. Emphasis is placed not only on how to perform the technique, but also on when and why. It’s the knowledge every project manager needs to succeed.

As project management applies to all industries, the material presented is relevant to every practitioner. To support the effective application of the techniques learned, the project life cycle is related to development life cycles (process methodologies). In addition, real world project challenges presented in class offer hands-on opportunities for participants to identify specific project management tools to help solve each problem.

While this is not a traditional leadership course, it acknowledges that project managers are in leadership roles, and accordingly emphasizes the leadership aspect of each technique. By teaching participants how the project management tool set enables them to satisfy all their stakeholders – sponsors, management, customers and the project team – this course allows the project manager to achieve success on many levels.
